  • C

    corporate VM (corporate virtual machine)

    A corporate VM (corporate virtual machine) is a virtual computing environment (VM) that is allocated to an end user for business use.

  • L

    lldpnetmap

    Lldpnetmap is a troubleshooting command that displays to which physical switch an ESXi host is connected.

  • P

    personal VM (personal virtual machine or PVM)

    A personal VM (personal virtual machine) is a virtual computing environment that is allocated to an end user for personal use.

  • V

    vmkping

    Vmkping is a command used to verify and troubleshoot VMkernel network connectivity.

  • VMware Access Point

    VMware Access Point is a virtual appliance used as a secure gateway which authorized users can access VMware computing resources.

  • VMware EVC (VMware Enhanced vMotion compatibility)

    VMware EVC (VMware Enhanced vMotion Compatibility) is a feature in VMware vSphere virtualization that allows virtual machines (VMs) to move between ESX/ESXi hosts on different CPUs.

  • VMware NIC teaming (VMware network interface card teaming)

    VMware NIC teaming is a way to group several network interface cards (NICs) to behave as one logical NIC.

  • VMware NSX
